    Operational wasting has been reduced to an all-time low with the help of our innovative solutions. Achieve 80% waste diversion rates across all manufacturing plants, recycle 100% of PMW TPO or shingle scrap and mat cores as well as retain whatever remains for reusing in some way!

    Reduce our carbon emissions by boosting energy efficiency, developing renewable energy technologies, and/or researching and/or innovating new carbon-removing techniques.

    Green Portfolio Expansion
